KUCHING: Those flying out of Kuching International Airport (KIA) have been advised to come early to avoid missing their flights as flash floods hit the city today.
Airport senior manager Mohd Nadzmi Hashim, however, said the situation was under control at KIA and it was not affected by the flash floods, which wreaked havoc in several parts of Kuching and Samarahan this morning.
“The airport is not affected by flash flood as we are on higher ground compared with the city.
“Nevertheless, passengers have been advised to come to the airport early to avoid missing their flights.”
Heavy rain, which is expected to last until afternoon, submerged several main roads in the city.
The Sarawak General Hospital was also affected, with ankle-deep water on its ground level.
Even the Sarawak police headquarters was not spared from the wet spell, with several of its buildings at Jalan Badaruddin submerged.
